Drawing from the Bible, literature, lyrics, and original prayers, William O'Malley has composed a six-week cycle of morning, midday, and evening prayers and meditations. From Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday, each entry provides spiritual nourishment. The book's last sentence is: 'Holy Friend, the end is the beginning. Amen.'

In addition to psalmists and evangelists, contributions come from writers and poets such as Flannery O'Connor, Bob Dylan, Simon Weil, Rainer Maria Rilke, C.S. Lewis, Paul Simon, Alice Walker, G.K. Chesterton, Gerard Manley Hopkins, Thomas Merton, Dorothy Day, and John Donne.
